Privacy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At SwimTopia we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, SwimTopia collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SwimTopia’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how SwimTopia’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SwimTopia may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

SwimTopia also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. SwimTopia does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to SwimTopia’s websites choose to interact with SwimTopia in ways that require SwimTopia to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SwimTopia gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at swimtopia.com to provide a user name and an email address. Those who engage in transactions with SwimTopia by purchasing access to the SwimTopia swim team management service, for example are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SwimTopia collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SwimTopia. SwimTopia does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

SwimTopia may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, SwimTopia may monitor the most popular features used by customers when interfacing on the swimtopia.com site. SwimTopia may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SwimTopia does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

SwimTopia discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SwimTopia’s behalf or to provide services available at SwimTopia’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SwimTopia’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SwimTopia will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SwimTopia discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when SwimTopia believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SwimTopia, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a SwimTopia website and have supplied your email address, SwimTopia may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SwimTopia and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SwimTopia takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. SwimTopia uses cookies to help SwimTopia identify and track visitors, their usage of SwimTopia’s websites, and their website access preferences. SwimTopia visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using SwimTopia’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of SwimTopia’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by SwimTopia and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, SwimTopia may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in SwimTopia’s sole discretion. SwimTopia encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
